MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Wisconsin health officials say an increase in COVID-19 cases in the state this week is likely linked to the more contagious Delta variant of coronavirus and exacerbates the need for unvaccinated residents to be inoculated.

Nearly 51% of the nationwide population has received at least one dose of the vaccine, and about 48% across the state are fully vaccinated, which officials say provides good protection against the Delta variant.

Across the country, 83 cases of the Delta variant have been detected through tests performed on some samples, up from 35 cases in mid-June.
